We remember...


This young man and his family attend our church. A week ago, Wesley made the ultimate sacrifice for his country while serving in the Army in Iraq and was called to his home in heaven with Jesus.

This week is filled with a memorial service, funeral and full military-style committal for this brave young man. Our hearts are full...we are thankful for this young man's sacrifice.
And we are comforted in knowing that he knew Jesus Christ as his savior. Even though we mourn here on earth, we rejoice that he is in heaven.

Green smoothie challenge...



My friend Kim is always involved in the most interesting stuff. Recently, she's become more and more involved in healthful and organic eating, and she inspired me to try the Green Smoothie Challenge ...

We're not doing the smoothies EVERY day, but we've tried a few. This morning, hubby and I both enjoyed a smoothie full of pears, banana, spinach and a few leftover strawberries and grapes. It was surprisingly good and and so good for you!
